At the end of a long day, all you really want to do is put your feet up and relax or the rest of the night. A good ottoman can help you do just that. Here are 10 ottomans you didn’t know you needed in your living space until now.
Add an Unexpected Edge
Place your ottomans in the middle of the room diagnially to create dimension
In a living space with an all-white décor theme having one or more ottomans in a bold color or texture can add the edge you seek. For a bold look that is also subtle at the same time, consider metallic tones that will add texture and edge without adding a different color palette to your décor.
Faux Fur Addition
These can be placed in a bedroom, living room or even as stools in your dining table to add texture to the space
Many decorative items come in faux fur and ottomans are not staying behind. In fact, adding a faux fur ottoman may be just what you need to add texture to your living space. They add a soft and cozy addition to your décor. Your guests will be eager to sit on these as they feel even better than they look.
The Multitasking Table
A textured ottoman is a great way to bring a focal point to your living room it is also functional and reliable every time
The versatility of an ottoman is pretty much endless. As stated above, they’re versatile enough to be used for multiple different purposes. In fact, they can even be used as a table. If you are looking for a center table for your home, having a large ottoman could be just what you need. It’s a function piece that looks great when it’s being used and when it is not.
Choose matching ottomans that have detailing to add little extra to the bedroom in a subtle manner
Whether the size of your room is big or small having extra seating is always a great idea. Furthermore, adding extra seating can make your bedroom appear large and even give it a hint of elegance. Add two plush ottomans to the edge of your bed to instantly upgrade the look and feel of your room.
Simple and Oversized
A large ottoman in the center of a room will make the room appear smaller. Therefore, select a textured ottoman to decrease this effect
Adding an oversized piece of furniture to your décor may be all you need to tie it all together. However, when considering a large furniture piece, you want a simple piece. The reason being a large statement piece will always become the center of attention in a room. If the piece is oversized and textured it will take away from the other furniture items you have.
A simple and oversized ottoman in the center of your living room is perfect for lounging and creating a focal point in your living room.
Two is Better than One
Add an intense pop of color with your ottoman when you choose a contrasting color from the ones using in your bedroom decor.
Why have one ottoman that matches your décor when you can have two? Two identical ottomans work great in any space that needs furniture items to balance the theme out. It is also an excellent way to add pops of color or texture that can brighten up the space.
Outdoor and Waterproof
Outdoor ottomans can come in multiple different colors that brighten up your space
Ottomans are not only for your indoor space they can actually go outdoors as well. In fact, if you want to add extra seating and a comfortable new way to decorate your outdoor living space adding waterproof ottomans is the way to go. They are easy to carry around so your guests can sit anywhere they choose without having to carry heavy chairs with them.
Blue is an excellent color to incorporate into your decor as it is versatile enough for it to be paired with multiple other colors. Yet bold enough to bring intense color to a room.
